Chitty Chitty Bang Bang starring Lee Mead, Carrie Hope Fletcher, Shaun Williamson and Michelle Collins and was such a colourful and energetic performance at the Sunday Matinee. My whole family thoroughly enjoyed it as the stage set is amazing and unexpected for a touring production. Yes, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang even flies on stage! All the much loved songs were performed with such enthusiasm from all the cast, especially standing out 'Me Ol' Bamboo' . The Child Catcher was terrific, make up, costume and so evil. Carrie Hope Fletcher was perfectly cast as Truly Scrumptious and sang magically. It was a fantastic show and well worth catching at its next venue on its UK tour, fun for all the family!

I saw the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang UK Tour here and I thought it was an amazing show! A very very strong cast led by Lee Mead and Carrie Hope Fletcher, every single member of the cast, especially the kids who play Jeremy and Jemima, were incredible which really made the show exceptional. The set and all the technical and creative side (and of course the flying car) were also amazing.

Saw the UK tour of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, starring Lee Mead and Carrie Hope Fletcher. I am such a huge fan of musicals, but Chitty has always seemed slightly too far-fetched to me! It's a fun musical (the children in the theatre were absolutely lapping it up), but overall it seemed as though this particular leg of the tour had exhausted the cast! Dancing was shoddy and we could barely hear the singing (which may have been due to poor acoustics). Some parts were great, such as "The Ol' Bamboo" and "Hushabye Mountain", but the acting was questionable at times. Some good laughs and a fun night out, but not my cup of tea at all.

Not a great atmosphere, I'm not sure if that was because the theatre was not full or the audience were not appreciative. My daughter said she loved Carrie and Lee but would not see the show again. I thought the effects of the car in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang were good but like my daughter would probably not go again.

Show was good family entertainment. No surprises for a show that the audience knew well. Felt like a Christmas show.
